I was trying to wrap up Friday’s work when I got a phone call from Queen. She had lost a very special ring at the water’s edge about an hour before. I explained the incoming tide would have it covered up and that we should wait a couple hours for the tide to turn and go back down. We made arrangements to meet in 2 hours and I should be able to find it in short order.
I met Queen on the beach and she walked me to the area she lost the ring while scooping up a daughter from the surf. She was very certain of the area. I fired up my Excalibur and walked north about 20 feet and entered the water. I had taken only two steps when I got a tone in the phones that knocked my ears off. I missed the target with the first try and repositioned for a different angle. Scoop number 2 had the target. I swear, I think my sand scoop weighed more than it really should. My eyes bugged out of my head when I looked into the scoop. I walked about 30 feet up out of the trough and handed Queen her very large ring. Queen shouted with joy and exclaimed “Wow, Two scoops”. I responded “Just like Raisin Bran”. She was one happy lady. The smile tells the rest.
Queen, thank you for the very generous reward. Traveling Mercies back to Atlanta.
